State Birds & Flowers Quilt

Share

Carla Nix asked me if I could make quilt for her father, St. Elmo Harrison from a set of squares beautifully hand embroidered with all 50 states, the year of statehood, the state bird and the state flower. Mr. Harrison had purchased the set of squares previously with the intention of having a quilt made from them. I was glad to make it for them! I sashed it with red and blue Quilters Blenders fabric from our shop, bordered with one of our patriotic flag prints then bound it with red after quilting. The quilt is filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting for a soft comfortable feel and ideal weight. I stipple quilted it with Ecru thread. This quilt is a queen size tribute to America! 🙂

My sister, Iris Tye Melvin made this motorcycle quilt in Harley-Davidson colors for our nephew, Jamie Maphis from T-shirts he has collected from motorcycle rallies and Harley dealers around the country.

Melissa’s Irish Chain Quilt!

Share

Melissa Gilley pieced this Irish Chain quilt in warm, sunny colors. She did a very nice job with this quilt and hopefully she’ll keep this one to enjoy for herself! The quilt is filled with our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting for just the right weight and feel. I quilted it in a diamond design with wine color thread and then made the binding from the same material as the backing. We are proud that Melissa has made Lady Bird Quilts her second home where quilting is concerned!

Summer In The Park Quilt

This light and cheery quilt was pieced by Betty George. It is a five strip block with a beautiful turquoise theme. I bordered it in gray and turquoise prints provided by Betty to make it queen size. The quilt is filled with our “just the right weight” Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and backed with our Flowy Gray 108” quilt backing. I quilted it in the Flights of Fancy design. This quilt fills your mind with thoughts of spring & summer. It is a beautiful quilt, Betty!
